    Come to the Knicks

    I think he means high level athletically like ability to run, jump, strength, endurance, quickness, flexibility, etc. Porzingis is a good athlete but he's no Wilt, Russell, Shaq, D12, Jordan, Chandler type athletic. OP is asking will we have a LBJ/Westbrook type athlete from Europe basically.
    Other than that good thoughts on Porzingis.  
    Another thing is a lot of Euros come in with language and cultural barriers. Porzingis speaks fluent English and talks about having dinner wit Hov and dating Rihanna lol. Also made a good transition from Latvia to Spain.
    He's handled the media thus far with ease. Looks like he can be comfortable in America.

    I'm not a biologist either but it's pretty clear that people of African ancestry are the best athletes. 
    Looking at your baseball example today black people aren't groomed towards baseball only about 8% of the league is AA. But Afro-Latinos from DR, Cuba and Venezuela are among the best players. When the MLB was 25% black you weren't finding white players who could outrun Kenny Lofton or Rickey Henderson. No white players as good overall athletes as Ken Griffey Jr. or Bo Jackson. 
    It's a genetic thing

    I'm guessing you mean white players from Europe because there's quite a few athletic black European players in the league today. 
    I think Hezonja is a very good athlete and Rudy Fernandez was a pretty good athlete while he was in the league. 
    Parker is a strong athlete off rip just based on his All-Time speed and body control. Ginobili has always been underrated athletically because of how crafty he was. 
    Edit: Disregarded All-Star/Superstar

    Screamin' A.  
     
    He's a long time Knicks fan so he deserves the right to a temper tantrum as he's been through a lot. Give the kid a chance though, I'm very impressed with his workout and interviews. He's not Bargnani, his range isn't as good as his but he's easily more fluent and athletic, also has superior length. He speaks perfect English and competed in the second best basketball league in the world. His work ethic is through the roof, he wants to be great, he acknowledges his weak areas and realizes his expectations. He's been compared to Gasol as a teen, idolizes Dirk, and studies KG and Davis. He comes from a basketball family and is a student of the game. You're talking about a 7'1 guy with a knockdown 18 footer who can throw down windmill dunks and strives to play multiple positions. He has freak potential all he needs is bulk and a better handle. I think he's going to contribute more than people think in year one. I think it's a risk worth taking. 
     
    I'm usually skeptical of international players but Porzingis and Hezonja both look very legit.

    If I'm not mistaken the Rangers and Islanders are elite NHL franchises right now. The Mets have an elite farm system, great young pitching and are only a few bats away from being contenders in baseball.

    24 per game?
  8. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Gasol doesn't like the Lakers   

    Marc isn't going to the Lakers. I think he'll resign he grew up in Tennessee, his family still lives in the Memphis suburbs. The Grizzlies are still one of the best teams in the league and he seems happy and is in a role where he is the man. 
    I can only see him going to San Antonio but I feel as if the Spurs will go harder for LaMarcus Aldridge. 
  9. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Eric Bledsoe vs. Ty Lawson   

    Knicks in discussion with Suns and Nuggets for the 4th overall pick these two guys along with later lottery picks are the center pieces of the deal. Who do you consider the better player?

  10. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: 2015 Warriors vs. 2008 Celtics   

    2015  Warriors. For as good as the Celtics were defensively they weren't that much better than the Warriors. Fringe top 10 offense that got taken 7 by far inferior Cavaliers and Hawks teams. Warriors are on another level offensively and have way more depth, while dominating a tougher conference.

    Bledsoe+13th pick for the 4th pick seems very enticing to me? Thoughts? 
    Stein will be trash really hope we don't draft him.

    Hating ass post simpleton  
     
    So much wrong with this  
  14. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Lebron Faced Better Defenses than Jordan in the Playoffs and Finals...   

    The '14 Spurs and '15 Warriors are better than any team Jordan faced. The '15 Warriors are one of the G.O.A.T. teams. 
    Do you have one for Kobe? 
  15. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Marc Stein on LBJ's relationship with Blatt   

    I don't like it either they have a really weird up and down relationship. I don't understand, LBJ said he wants him back too. LeBron can't continue this, and I'm sure he'll see this article. 
     
    Blatt wasn't getting respect from J.R. during halftime of game 6 he looked zoned out and disinterested and you had veterans I'm guessing Shawn Marion and Kendrick Perkins frustrated with him in the playoffs too. 
    I'm sure over time the team will have more trust in Blatt, hell Wade and Spoelstra got into it all the time.
